prices continued to rise through december of last year. the ten-city composite up 5.9%. the 20-city composite up 6.8%. david blitzer is the chairman of the s&p 500 index committee. david, welcome back. good morning. >> good morning. >> pretty good numbers to close out the year. people still trying to get their arms around how distressed properties are moving some of these prices, especially in key markets. >> that's right. i think the overall picture is very, very strong. the national index, which is up 7.3% for the four quarters, ended with the end of 2012. so really, all across the country things look good. only one city of all 20 was down on the year-over-year basis. >> still, though, i'm told the index is heavily skewed by the share of distressed. that's why atlanta could be down 17%. and now up 10% year-over-year. are these numbers, are they reflective of what's happening with real buyers? >> yes, i think they are reflective of what's actually happening with real buyers. what we've seen in city after city over the last couple of years is the city will get hit with a wave of for

out the first store in new york city. that's not for a while now. but more important they're spending big on the nordstrom website. nordstrom's is moving aggressively into mobile. last year, mobile devices accounted for a fifth of the total sales and it grew at a 31% clip last quarter. it can help the stock to continue to power higher in a world where everyone gets 3 and 4-g. the next gatsby component, how about ralph lauren. maybe this isn't the best example. this is the premiere high end apparel brand. nothing says preppy like polo. they earned 240 a share. these companies are doing better even if their stocks aren't. and it gave very healthy guidance for 2013. this is what happens when you have a brand that's perceived to be on the high end of things. the money flows in because people cannot resist a little conspicuous consumption. this can be a perilous game. look at coach. they're a dog because they're widely perceived as having fallen behind on the style curve with its merchandise. i don't think ralph lauren will fall prey because they have staying power and they have s

university. today's "wall street journal" questions the big bonus citi paid lew. sounds a lot like revolving door crony capitalism. that's right. back with us now is mike ozanian, steve mcmahon, and kay bailey hutchison. mike, i don't know this guy. i don't know. i don't know why nyu had to give him a special severance payment. he left voluntarily. i don't know why citigroup had to give him a bonus. he went to the federal government. the stipulation was if you go work for the federal government, we will guarantee you a bonus. not if you go work for the red cross or a non-profit. this sounds to me like crony capitalism revolving door. >> you know what? i have so much respect for tim geithner, that to me this seems like such a downgrade. it's very disturbing to me. it bothers me even more than the nomination of chuck hagel. it just seems like the president is totally disengaged. no one vetted this guy. it's just crony capitalism, as you said. and the president spoke so vehemently for so long that this was something he was going to put a stop to. >> that's a key point. he talked about

the top drawers. today it's one of the most affordable in a sense. we're a natural fit for the ultrahigh net worth russian buyer. >> the prices these guys are paying, whether it's new york, miami, los angeles, they are incredible, $100 million dollar place in california, $88 million the russian bought in new york city. $40 million, most expensive home ever bought in miami from a russian. why are these guys paying so much? what do they like for in the u.s. >> value. we're still in comparison to london quite inexpensive. if you look at london prices, you'll realize we're probably anywhere from 30 to 50% below the prices for comparable property in london. so value is one of the first items. new york is, again, one of the most prestigious places for anyone to buy. the russian market recognizes that. they are drawn to sexy locations. new york is as sexy as you can get. >> is it? i would have thought miami was a little sexier than new york. i would like to know as well, are they going for residential property or are we starting to see russians buy commercial property as well for deve
